Eid al-Fitr: Mahama congratulates Muslims

Former President John Dramani Mahama has congratulated Muslims in the country as they celebrate the Eid al-Fitr festival, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan today, Wednesday, 5 June 2019.

Mr Mahama prayed for Allah’s protection and guidance for everyone.

The timing of Eid al-Fitr, or “the festival of breaking the fast”, begins with the first sighting of the new moon, and it often varies from country to country.

Celebrations begin with a special early morning prayer in mosques and open-air spaces and later move on to feasts and festivals.

In Ghana, the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr Osman Nuhu Sharubutu will lead the national prayers at the Independence Square in Accra.

Muslims leaders use the occasion to pray for the nation and preach religious tolerance.
